The present invention relates to an apparatus for projecting computer generated stereoscopic images, and more particularly, to an apparatus with dual-port VGA card that is capable of outputting data of stereoscopic image.
With rapid advance of image processing technology, it has been greatly used in creating special effects for commercial movies, especially for computer animations. The movies using special effects as main attraction have become mainstream thesedays. Simultaneously, as the Disney's animations present well known fairy tale characters in visually stereoscopic images that are popular to the public, 3D movie starts to show great potential in commercial world and has attracted many interests for further investment.
Please refer to
The primary object of the invention is to provide a computer apparatus for projecting stereoscopic images, which is an apparatus with dual-port VGA card or dual-port SVGA card capable of outputting processed data of stereoscopic image. Before projecting a stereoscopic image, the left eye image of the stereoscopic image is coupled with the right eye image of the same stereoscopic image horizontally, but not overlap, for forming a single image file. Thereafter, the dual-port VGA card of the apparatus of the invention receives the single image file and projects the left eye image and the right eye image to a stereoscopic screen for constructing the stereoscopic image.
